PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students make evidence-based inferences with these characterization worksheets for characters in Blood on the River! (They're part of my Blood on the River novel unit.)
The first activity focuses on Samuel, the novel's narrator. Students will write and answer questions about Samuel's life and perspective. Some information to answer questions can be found in the novel, but students will need to make inferences in order to come up with really good answers.
The second page is a text-based characterization of Captain John Smith. Four types of characterization are covered - direct characterization, words, actions, and other characters' reactions. Students will see examples of each type of characterization, and then they are challenged to find their own examples in the novel and use each one to make an inference about Smith's character.
The third and fourth pages are similar to the first two, but they allow students to choose the characters they wish to focus on. There are many fascinating minor characters in this novel, so I would encourage doing multiple character studies to practice this important reading skill!
